From the NYT:

For Bernie Sanders, Claims of Sexism in 2016 Campaign Hang Over 2020 Bid

As Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont considers another run for president, former staffers said he had failed to address the harassment and sexism they faced while working on his 2016 campaign.

By Sydney Ember and Katie Benner
Jan. 2, 2019

In February 2016, Giulianna Di Lauro, a Latino outreach strategist for Senator Bernie Sanders’s presidential operation, complained to her supervisor that she had been harassed by a campaign surrogate whom she drove to events ahead of the Democratic primary in Nevada.

She said the surrogate told her she had “beautiful curly hair” and asked if he could touch it, Ms. Di Lauro said in an interview. Thinking he would just touch a strand, she consented. But she said that he ran his hand through her hair in a “sexual way” and continued to grab, touch and “push my boundaries” for the rest of the day.

“I just wanted to be done with it so badly,” she said.

When she reported the incident to Bill Velazquez, a manager on the Latino outreach team, he told her, “I bet you would have liked it if he were younger,” according to her account and another woman who witnessed the exchange. Then he laughed.

How dare Senator Sanders not drop everything else he was doing and wade into the minutiae of this incident, fully rehashing this deplorable/fascinating event?

Sanders in 2016 came out of nowhere by activating one of the more powerful forces in history: young male energy. This was widely assumed initially to ruin his chances with young women Democrats, but, whaddaya know, it turns out that young women kind of like young men! Especially young men who act like they are on a team with a leader and have a plan for taking power.

But, this kind of success must not stand:

Jeff Weaver, Mr. Sanders’s 2016 campaign manager and currently a top adviser, said in an email that … “Was it too male? Yes. Was it too white? Yes,” he said. “Would this be a priority to remedy on any future campaign? Definitely, and we share deeply in the urgency for all of us to make change.” …

Allegations of sexism surfaced during Mr. Sanders’s campaign in 2016, when many of his male fans were derogatorily dubbed “Bernie Bros” for their aggressive online attacks against female reporters and supporters of Hillary Clinton. But they did not overshadow the electrifying nature of his insurgent challenge.

Or, just maybe, over the last 600 years, young white men are the people who have gotten most of the big things done?

iSteve commenter Jack D calls our attention to this bit of interest in the article:

In her interview with The Times, Ms. Di Lauro said she told several people who were high up in the campaign, including Rich Pelletier, who served as national field director, about her encounter in Nevada with the surrogate, a Mexican game show host named Marco Antonio Regil. But she felt she was not taken seriously by the campaign.

Jack D asks: “Imagine if Trump had Russian game show hosts shilling for his campaign?”

These Latin American celebrities like Alicia Machado that the Democrats thought were their secret weapons in 2016 … Anyway, it sounds like the Latinx Outreach Division of the Sanders campaign was muy caliente!

In an interview, Ms. Mendieta said that she complained multiple times to Mr. Velazquez and Mr. Pelletier about Mr. [Arturo] Carmona and was repeatedly ignored, at one point being told by Mr. Velazquez that she should forgive Mr. Carmona’s behavior because he was “macho.” …

Mr. Carmona was promoted out of the Latino outreach group during the campaign and named a deputy national political director.

Commenter The Anti-Gnostic exclaims:

My whole worldview has been rocked. I’ll never look at Mexican gameshow hosts the same way again!

    Somehow this brings to mind a dead-eyed semi-functional android that is being driven around from one grassroots event to the next for days on end to give a greeting and a robospeech to the assembly. The semi-functionality then degenerates into dis-functionality and dangerous robo-harrassment.

    Then it’s off to the repairshop.

    Later on she mentions the man in questions was a Mexican Game Show host named Marco Antonio Regil. Maybe Bernie can adopt a no foreign nationals as campaign surrogates rule for his 2020 run. We will see how bad Bernie thinks he needs the non-American vote.

    The article also mentions the lack of pay transparency and that employees negotiated their own pay, which is a problem because men are more assertive about asking for more money. Samantha Davis, the director of operations in Texas and New York was making $2,400 a month. At a 40 hour work week that would be $13.84 an hour, so much for the fight for $15. It didn’t occur to Ms. Davis to ask for more money until she saw in campaign records that a man who reported to her was making $5,000 a month. Is this one of the dirty secrets of our political system? The people at the top make out like bandits and everyone below gets the crumbs or simply the satisfaction of sacrificing for “the cause.” What a racket.

    Your mention of Bernie reminds me of when those young black women commandeered his microphone. If he runs again in 2020, he has to be wary of the optics of white, cis-male aides keeping black women protestors from the mic. Whatever happened to Gaddafi’s Amazon bodyguards?

    Steve,

    Bernie Sanders always reminded me of Rocky Balboa from the original (1976) “Rocky” or Bruce Willis’ Butch the Boxer character from “Pulp Fiction”. To whit, a patsy or easy mark for Hillary to beat. The patsy gets pulled in, the Champ toys with him and then knocks him out claiming a fair fight, and it all looks legit to the yokels in the cheap seats.

    Except Rocky, Butch, and Bernie didn’t follow the script and bloodied the Champ. When Bernie beat Hillary in Michigan, it was the first sign Her Royal Highnesses coronation was not a done deal. That said, I suspect these sexual harassment claims are a subtle warning to back the Hell off old man.

    This has nothing to do with Sanders or even his 2016 campaign – it’s just a power grab by women, especially women de color and any stick will do to beat a dog.

    And it has raised questions… about whether he can adequately fight for the interests of women, who have increasingly defined the Democratic Party in the Trump era, if he runs again for the presidential nomination in 2020.

    “Was it [ Sander’s 2016 campaign] too male? Yes. Was it too white? Yes”

    Two unforgivable sins. This coming from his own 2016 campaign manager, trying to get out in front of the bus before it runs him over. Won’t work.

    Giulianna Di Lauro… complained to her supervisor that she had been harassed by a campaign surrogate .

    Later we learn the name of the surrogate:

    a Mexican game show host named Marco Antonio Regil

    Imagine if Trump had Russian game show hosts shilling for his campaign?

    Further complaints are lodged against Bill Velazquez

    and Arturo Carmona

    Have the corrupt and traitorous politicians in Europe and North America who multiculturalized the Western countries set the stage for the genocide of whites?

    Well said.

    One laughable aspect of this pound-me-too! thing is the idea that women are just now standing up and saying “no!”. On the contrary saying “no” or “i’m not that kind of girl” was what young women were expected/supposed to say back in the day.

    It is precisely “liberation” that has kicked away the social support/social expectation for women to say “no” and call out male misbehavior as … uh … misbehavior. The plain fact is once you kick away “the rules”, male misbehaior is not misbehavior–it’s just guys making a play, trying to figure out if she’s game, encourage her to be game.

    No rules–and the sort of “explore my sexuality” expectation–is a more difficult environment for girls because of their more compliant nature–both to the narrative and to individuals, especially authority figures.

    ~~

    Back in the day this girl could have–without embarassment–just said “no”, no fuss, no muss. Now–since some guy playing with her hair is flirty and fun–faced with a request from an authority figure she–being compliant–doesn’t quite feel comfortable saying “no”. Then the guy–of course–takes her assent as an invitation … Bernie Sanders is supposed to deal with this crisis.

    Hint for young women “No”, “I’m not that kind of girl”, “I’m saving myself for marriage”, “Keep your hands to yourself!” are all perfectly reasonable–and AnotherDad approved–responses to male propositioning. Not dressing or acting like a slut is also extremely helpful. And believe it or not if you are attractive–not fat–personable and have “saving it for marriage” behavior, that package is actually quite appealing to men actually interested in marriage.

  45. In my salad days, I lived in DC. I knew a fair amount of reporters and Hill staffers just by vicinity. According to them, campaigns were always a bit of a frat party environment. Long days, tense atmosphere and some drinks at the end of the day naturally led to a good amount of hooking up.

    So I’m not sure what this women is worrying about. Then again, this was the 1990s, so perhaps things have changed.

    Btw, according to the people that I knew, it was also well known that it was definitely more fun to be on a Democratic campaign than a GOP campaign. More women in general and more women willing to have a bit of fun than the GOP campaigns. This actually squares with my non-campaign interactions with Hill staffers. GOP staffs were more men, and the women, while often quite pretty, were more serious. Dem women staffers were less, shall we say, grounded.

    Btw, again, I knew a couple of reporters who followed Clinton and Dole in ’96. The reporters were, of course, liberal, but to their surprise, the reporters who followed Clinton learned to despise him while the reporters who followed Dole came to like him.

    Actually I think bernie did the right thing. He kept his hands clean. And he let that man in the khaki hat do the dirty work. The man in the hat commandeered the podium and boxed out those two like it was a rutgers womens basketball scrimmage. He let the crowd know that they would get a chance to speak, but not until they calmed down and he had displayed his dominance. This was important. While all parties ideologically supported BLM, it is still human nature to disrespect weakness. The crowd would have perceived bernie as weak had that man not initially grabbed the podium and stood his ground. Notice the crowd boos the pair non stop and hardly lets them speak.

  71. @Hail

    “Paul Craig Roberts” rings a bell here only because of his posts on VDARE. Hail’s post is not at all off-topic. Not too many years ago Sanders was merely a standard POS crypto-Stalinist who claimed to support social democracy (most US Democrats and European Social Democrats have gone full (anti-white) Mengele)as well as immigration restrictions – in order to protect US working people. However, when asked something along the lines of whether black lives matter or if all lives matter, he (Sanders) said, “Black lives matter.” That got applause and he then went on to obfuscate/lie saying that Black lives mattered because a black woman died after being arrested and so forth. Leaving aside the truth that if Martin, Brown, Garner or Gray had been white, their lives would not have mattered nearly so much, Bernie avoided the burn which he would have suffered had he said, “White lives also matter.” (I can’t rule out the possibility that he uttered some mealey-mouth lie like, “Of *course* white lives also matter” at some point)

    There was another gag-me moment during the prez campaign when Sanders pretended to find the actions of the Khmer Rouge repellent. Pol Pot’s peeps killed only something like 25% of the Cambodian population. Not too long ago about 90% of the US population was white and at present it seems not unlikely that most or all of the honkeys here will be exterminated/absorbed within a century. Another Jewish guy (also at risk for being murdered by an anti-white POC coalition), Noam Chomsky, famously defended the Khmer Rouge.

    Recently Steve Sailer (perhaps as a corrective to an earlier thread which resulted in Jewish and Gentile posters giving at least a very superficial appearance (maybe it’s just me with this very crude impression) of pointing fingers at each other with respect to the slave trade) wrote something to the effect that Jews and Gentiles are, or should be, in the “same boat.” I hope that proves to be true – in a good way – not as in the oft-turned away refugee-laden MS St. Louis -in turn not to be confused with the Spirit of St. Louis as in Charles Lindbergh – who expressed some nasty anti-Semitisms, but had a point about invading hordes (perhaps not including Adolf’s “Honorary Aryans”). Flogging this further (we seem to be doomed; might as well have some fun) – here’s also hoping it won’t be a “Ship of Fools” – aka “Das Narrenschiff” -as in Rep. Adam “Narren” Schiff.

    Aren’t young women — particularly good looking young women — supposed to learn to discourage such advances, or at least avoid the situations that are likely to lead to them? Some of my less pleasant if not precisely traumatic memories involve women I found attractive managing to politely but very unequivocally repel my advances.

    We all have our cross to bear, after all. Men have to decide how they’re going to handle physical confrontations, for example. Those can be fun. It could be worse — I feel genuinely sorry for ugly women. They’re screwed, as a rule.

    The Deeply Troubling Reason Women In Mexico City Are Riding Separate Subway Cars

    Mexico City first began implementing its women-only subway train carriages in 2000 and started circulating women-only pink buses in 2008. But the Mexican capital is hardly alone, cities in Japan, Brazil, Iran and India have also implemented similar practices over the years.

    Countries with women-only bus services include Bangladesh, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Pakistan, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates. Women-only subway cars or sections of trains are found in countries including Brazil, Egypt, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, and Russia…

    Women in Manila were most in favor of single-sex transport (94 percent), followed by Jakarta, Mexico City, and Delhi. In contrast, women in New York saw the least need for it (35 percent supported it), followed by women in Moscow, London, and Paris…

    First, women-only public transportation assumes sex and gender are binary and does not consider LGBTI individuals. It also does not account for men’s experiences with sexual harassment and assault—which, while less common, does still happen. This is especially true for men who are or perceived to be gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, and/or effeminate…

    http://www.takepart.com/article/2015/08/31/women-only-public-transportation

With respect to Quiz Show, it’s likely that Steve Sailer (wearing his movie reviewer hat; lotsa’ hats in Miller’s Crossing btw) observed that when HS (played by John Turturro) “took a dive” by giving the wrong answer, On The Waterfront, rather than right one, Marty, this echoed the dive taken by Terry Malloy (played by Marlon Brando) in the former. Stempel could be thought of as a “whistle-blower,” though less charitable characterizations by Van Doren probably came to mind. I haven’t watched a new movie in years, but find it easy and fun to imagine Turturro delivering Brando’s words into Quiz Show: “You remember that? ‘This ain’t your night.’ My night! I could have taken Van Doren apart! What do I get? A one-way ticket to Palookaville!…” – as well HS speaking, as he asks for forgiveness for the quiz show cheat, Turturro’s line from Miller’s Crossing: “Look in your heart!”

    The trick is that, while Senator Sanders is far from perfect, he still has some part of him that cares about the average American worker and his nation. THAT cannot stand.

    When, in 2016, he dared to say that open-borders immigration was not really liberal but was something pushed by the Koch brothers in order to drive wages down and profits up, why, that simply could not be allowed. He was assaulted by the monolithic corporate press with a coordinated attack of ‘racist fascist and LITERALLY HITLER’ until he backed down.

    These ‘circular firing squads’ are not at base irrational (though the useful idiots on the firing line often are). Nothing gets out in the corporate press that is not scripted, and that does not serve a purpose, whether that be wearing down a non-100% corporate type, or only distracting us from something real.

    Sanders is weak, and will typically fold under corporate pressure, but he’s maybe not a 100% reliable corporate whore like a Clinton or an Obama. So expect more of this, to ensure that we get someone like Macron or Clinton etc.

    Den 28-årige irakiern var så missnöjd med asyl­standarden i Finland att han valde att åka tillbaka till Sverige och våldta en svensk kvinna på nattåget. Kvinnan ville först inte anmäla mannen på grund av hans flyktingsituation. Men nu döms våldtäktsmannen till fängelse och utvisning av tingsrätten, som konstaterar att han inte alls är någon flykting.

    Tågvärden frågade om han skulle ringa till polis. Till en början ville hon inte det, eftersom hon inte ville sätta N.N., som är asylsökande, i en jobbig situation. Hon tyckte synd om honom…och var rädd att han då skulle utvisas till Irak”, står det i domen.

    If you had to pick a contender for rape capital of the world, Sweden wouldn’t likely come to mind. Yet it now has the second-highest official rape rate of any country. It’s 53.2 rapes per 100,000 inhabitants is five times the U.S.A.’s rate and is only surpassed by Lesotho….

    [Vi]olent crime in Sweden has increased three hundred per cent since 1975. That year, write Scandinavian journalists Ingrid Carlqvist and Lars Hedegaard, “Four hundred and twenty-one rapes were reported to the police; in 2014, it was 6,620. That is an increase of 1,472%.” Why is 1975 significant?

    Because that’s the year the Swedish government decided to adopt an immigration regime that would transform Sweden into a multicultural country.

    This is also significant because 77.6 per cent of the country’s rapists are identified as foreigners.

Also a significant ‘Other’ category (~10%) which I don’t know what that’s picking up.

    For Chinese it is 41.5% marrying their own ethnic-nationality and 28.5% marrying Whites, but the Chinese in today’s USA are on average less rooted than the K’s and J’s.

    Except the prosecutors in Bonfire knew what the answer was – they were doing it because they wanted to put bad guys away (regardless of their color) and make the city safe for the rest of us. Yes, it’s depressing that the people committing crimes are overwhelmingly “of color” unlike on Law and Order, but the prosecutors have no control over who commits crimes. Lady Justice wears a blindfold – she doesn’t care what color you are, just that you must be punished if you have broken the law.

    A lot of Indian products are available outside ethnic groceries or are represented by American or mixed brands, but Indian garlic paste is far better than others. Trader Joe’s garlic paste is weak, possibly because of Mexican garlic, which yields larger cloves and is visually appealing but flavorless. Indian pride in seasoning means that the spice aisle of an ethnic grocery is worth a look. However the rice itself is rice. The South grew rice before it grew cotton. The texture will be there and I don’t see that its innate flavor would appear in a carefully done taste test.

    In my view, AM-WF pairings tend to have significantly better outcomes than WM-AF pairings on average.

    I think the reason for this is simple: AMs and WFs tend to possess a dislike (perhaps innate) of members of the other category, so when they do form a couple, it is almost always a well-considered decision.

    WM-AF pairings, on the other hand, often appear to be results of desperation, with predictably subpar outcomes.
